An injured or seriously unwell child can be frightening and difficult to deal with if you don't know what to do.
Learning first aid and resuscitation/CPR can help you with what to do when a child is injured or during a medical emergency. Talk with your Plunket nurse about courses that are available in your area or contact St John about first aid training.
This video story on the Raising Children site shows you the basics of first aid and how to perform CPR.
